Stephen A. Smith Says Jack Del Rio Doesn’t Understand Deadly BLM Riots Because He’s ‘White’
Stephen A. Smith says Jack Del Rio doesn’t understand the significance of the deadly 2020 BLM riots because he is – and we underline to describe his articulation of the word – “whiiiiite”.
Shit, Del Rio.
Here’s Smith on First take:

For a refresher, Del Rio last week questioned the patchwork coverage between Jan. 6 and the much deadlier riots on behalf of George Floyd.
While Del Rio used a poor choice of words calling the Capitol storm “dust,” his question remains valid and unanswered: Why the inconsistent outrage between the two riots?
And since no one will answer, we will:
The difference between January 6 and the BLM riots is perception. You condemn on January 6 and the press thanks you for your service. You criticize BLM and the press calls you a racist.
Selective outrage is always about getting on the politically correct side of every issue. Del Rio committed the crime of interrogating influential DC and media hypocrites.
Factual reporting on BLM is so sparse it’s likely unbeknownst to Smith that the riots have been piling up $2 billion in damage across the country and the death of at least 25 people. In other words, “mainly peaceful”.

Acknowledging the devastation caused by the BLM riots in no way diminishes what happened on January 6th. Both events were horrific, as are all violent riots.
So what does Del Rio’s white skin have to do with understanding the results of the riots?
Unfortunately, Ryan Clark – who refused to work with Sage Steele because his policies differed from his – didn’t bother to challenge Smith’s position. Instead, Clark sat down and nodded.

Del Rio committed the crime of interrogating influential DC and media hypocrites. He dared to think for himself. As a result, COs fined him $100,000, he deleted his Twitter, and the media will seek to kick him out of the NFL.
This is the price of independent thought. You have been warned.
Del Rio wanted to have an honest conversation. It’s not being “white”, but curious. Unfortunately, Smith and the media will not allow this conversation to take place.
